Little changes = little differences

I’ve been following the advice of the councilor for the past 4 days now and just some little things I’ve noticed:

· I have more energy since I am trying to eat every 2.5 to 3 hours. And I don’t mean just a bit more kick in my step, I mean I feel loads better.

· I am less anxious about losing weight because I am focused on eating in a healthy manner. I don't feel overwhelmed at the task at hand.

· I never feel panicked about “OMG it’s ____ minutes/hours until lunch/dinner I’m never going to make it” because 2.5-3 hours between eating something, even if it’s just a small snack, goes by so fast that I feel like I’m always pretty close to snack time.

· Planning eating takes a lot of…well…planning

· I have the most wonderfully supportive husband in the world who is now eating breakfast with me, even though he’s never eaten breakfast before in his life, because he wants to also be healthy and show his support. He’s also careful to remind me of when I should be eating a snack if we’re out running around and I forget. Seriously, he didn’t just jump on board, he jumped onboard and buckled himself in for the long haul. I don’t know what I’d do with him.

All this in just a few days. I don't want to jump the gun, but I'm really liking the changes so far.

That's so great to hear Sarah! I would love to live long enough to know what it feels like to have a supportive male in my life.
